The workshop rate depends on the length of the session, how much content needs to be adapted to your organization's needs, and how many facilitators are required. Please reach out to discuss your specific needs and budget.
WTC can provide speakers to discuss:
Key issues related to improving cities for women and girls
How your event or your organization’s goals link with the priorities of women and girls living in cities
How city problems like affordable housing and gender-based violence need to be, and can be, addressed at the city level
Women friendly cities
Engaging in city politics and the civic process
At European Women's Management Development International Network (EWMD) we value the collaboration and partnership with like-minded organizations towards building more equitable and inclusive communities. We were thrilled that Women Transforming Cities accepted our invitation to share wise practices of municipalities that are tackling childcare around the world. As municipalities embark on their journey to invest in care and make cities more inclusive, documenting and sharing the impact of such initiatives will help other cities to follow.

We had a wonderful experience working with the WTC team, who led an engaging presentation and activity for our youth program about intersectionality and climate change. We really appreciated their knowledge and flexibility to adapt the discussions based on our needs.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion/ANSAIO had the pleasure of collaborating with Women Transforming Cities on two workshops.
They supported us with building our team’s awareness of gendered intersectionality, power literacy and how this impacts municipal programs and services. WTC also worked with us to empower Women’s Advisory Committee of Halifax with information about a network of municipal governments and organization. They also shared innovative practices that are key to supporting women and gender inclusion cities with the Committee.
What we appreciated most was WTC’s ability to listen to our needs, design a solution around our goals and to adapt on the spot! We came away from this experience feeling empowered to influence change and build inclusive cities for all.
I would like to thank Trudi and Tasha from Women Transforming Cities for teaching me how to look at our cities and libraries through an intersectional lens so that everyone feels included.
